Bringing the 1980s to a console near you
I spent so many 10p pieces on the Turtles arcade machine back in the day. Once the argument over who got to be Michelangelo and Donatello was settled, I’d stand huddled around the oversized arcade cabinet with my besties, kicking foot clan butt.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge has perfectly captured the aesthetic of the classic Turtles games, while bringing it up to date with a few modern twists. It is being developed by Dotemu, who are known for their remakes like Streets of Rage 4 and Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, and Tribute Games, who have made a name for themselves with their retro themed indie games.
TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge has already been confirmed for Windows PC (Steam), and this new announcement focuses on its scheduled launch on Nintendo Switch. It’s unknown whether it will eventually make its way to the Xbox and PlayStation, but we certainly hope it does!
